The Board of Directors, Advocacy Committee and some of our members have developed the following two new items - A Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) Survey for clients and a Residential Documentation checklist.
POST OCCUPANCY EVALUATIONS
The Post Occupancy Evaluations (POE) was developed and led by Tom Bulic with the assistance of the rest of the Advocacy Team.
The POE will assist ArchiTeam members to obtain a valuable insight into the client experience of architect designed homes. Data will be fed back to ArchiTeam and collated by the Advocacy Committee. It will also be forwarded back to the individual architect allowing them to gain valuable insight into how their building performs over time in terms of sustainability, what the building process was like for the client and how they are experiencing the building itself.
Our Member Survey Insights 2022 told us that only 5% of members who responded to the survey always undertake POE’s on their projects. We are hoping the release of the POE tool assists in gaining better insights into how our clients experience the spaces we have designed for them
Please click on the link above and complete the information that you, as the architect, can complete.
